Definitely in a juke. Seen in a barbers’ shop — I really needed a haircut. A pleasingly retro moment on a pleasingly sunny day.
The Atomium is a 100m tall representation of an iron crystal, built for the 1958 World’s Fair in Brussels. It was supposed to only stand for six months, but was such a good idea that it’s still there, and gives you a pleasingly retro (though slightly overpriced) tourist experience as you go up into the various spheres and tubes. Probably somewhere in these reflections I appear, and thus this is a self-portrait, but let’s not worry about that too much.
